  • “Really lovely location and the cottage is very well equipped and thought out.”

    Excellently renovated, perfect for two. Would have liked more comfortable garden seating.

The property

Welsh Newton 1 mile.

This beautifully secluded, detached, hilltop cottage, is situated on the outskirts of the hamlet of Welsh Newton in Herefordshire and close to the popular riverside market town of Monmouth in Wales.

This delightful cottage is an idyllic getaway for couples looking for a romantic retreat in understated elegance, perfect to sit and relax in each other’s company or explore the stunning Wye Valley and Forest of Dean.

Set over two floors, there is a bedroom with a king-size bed with an adjacent bathroom on the first floor, whilst downstairs there is a compact kitchen, an intimate dining area and a cosy sitting area in front of the warming woodburner, all with fabulous views out onto the garden and across the valley.

Outside, you can sit on the patio in the pretty garden and gaze out across the fields, whilst you enjoy an early morning coffee or relax as the sun goes down.

The area surrounding this charming cottage is working farmland and is criss-crossed with footpaths, leading literally from the door, perfect for taking a stroll before venturing out to one of the local restaurants.

Monmouthshire has a fabulous selection of Michelin-starred restaurants and gastronomically renowned eateries, so you’ll have plenty of choice.

You are ideally placed to explore the fabulous Wye Valley, Herefordshire, and the Forest of Dean, the whole area is a patchwork of fabulous countryside, walks and spots to sit and relax.

There are a vast array of outdoor activities on offer nearby such as exploring the Sculpture Trail, tree top adventures, canoeing, golf and cycling.

Alternatively, why not try a course at the cookery school or a trip around Clearwell Caves or explore one of the several castles in the area?

Slightly further afield, the popular market town of Abergavenny awaits, gateway to the stunning countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park or the World Heritage Site of Blaenavon with its Big Pit museum, or even a day at Chepstow Races.

If retail therapy is more your thing, the cities of Hereford, Cardiff and Newport are all within an hour’s drive, as is the large spa town of Cheltenham which is also well worth a visit.

This lovely cottage is the perfect retreat to return to, whatever you choose to do.
